What you don't see is the little "transparent" driver installed to let the
adapter be read like a "normal floppy" under WinNT, Win9x, etc. Its with
this driver that the system-tray application communicates.
I suspect the device works using the "access window" approach [ala EMS,
except on a pseudo-floppy] - however, I haven't tried to confirm this due to
lack of hardware access [the gear belongs to my work, and I'm sure they
don't exactly want to lend it to me for prolonged periods of time given the
amount of use it gets - mind you, even if they did - I probably wouldn't
have the time anyway. :/].
